The   Eighth  Generation  925 

of  the  Groton  Avery  clan  (see  title  page  and  preface).  Mr. 
Avery  is  of  unmixed  New  England  ancestry;  through  his  mother, 
he  is  a  descendant  of  two  "Mayflower"  Pilgrims,  Stephen 
Hopkins  and  his  dau.,  Constance,  and  of  Thomas  Dudley,  the 
second  governor  of  the  colony  of  Massachusetts  Bay.  Early  in 
1861,  he  enlisted  as  a  private  in  the  4th  Mich.  vol.  inf.,  and,  at 
the  end  of  the  war  was  mustered  out  as  sergeant-major  of  the 
11th  Mich.  vol.  cavalry.  He  is,  of  course,  a  member  of  the 
Grand  Army  of  the  Republic.  He  was  graduated  from  the 
University  of  Michigan  in  1871.  He  is  a  member  of  the  Phi 
Beta  Kappa  society  and  has  received  the  academic  degrees  of 
Ph.  D.,  LL.  D.,  and  D.  C.  L.  He  is  a  Knight  Templar  and  a 
32  Mason,  a  Son  of  the  American  Revolution,  a  member  of  the 
Zeta  Psi  (college)  fraternity,  and  of  many  historical  and  scien- 
tific societies,  and  has  served  one  term  in  the  city  council  of 
Cleveland  and  four  years  in  the  state  senate  of  Ohio.  He  is  the 
author  of  the  "Avery  Physical  Science  Series"  of  text-books 
(physics  a^d  chemistry)  published  by  the  American  Book  Com- 
pany, and  of  Avery's  "History  of  the  United  States  and  its 
People"  (16  octavo  volumes),  of  which  seven  volumes  have  been 
published  (1911)  by  the  BurrowTs  Brothers  Company  of  Cleve- 
land, 0.  For  further  particulars,  see  Sweet's  "The  Averys  of 
Groton"  (pages  iv,  484  and  496-502),  "Who's  Who  in  Amer- 
ica," and  other  biographical  cyclopaedias.  Mr.  Avery  desires 
to  assure  the  members  of  the  clan  that  his  wife  is  a  much 
more  able  genealogist  than  he  is  and  that  to  her  they  owe 
the  successful  solution  of  many  puzzling  problems  relating  to 
their  ancestry.  She  has  also  been  untiring  in  her  efforts  to  make 
these  volumes  as  nearly  complete  and  accurate  as  possible.  For 
further  particulars  concerning  her,  see  "Who's  Who  in  America." 
They  have  no  children.    Residence,  Cleveland,  Ohio.

Avery  (No.  3112).  He  is  a  graduate  of  the  Massachu-

3114.  Charles  Hedding*  Avery  {Caspar  Hugh7,  Amos 
Walker6,  Abraham5,  William4,  John/-,  James2,  Christopher1)  was 
b.  Feb.  15,  1852,  at  Monroe,  Mich.;  m.  Oct.  22,  1878,  at 
Ithaca,  N.  Y.,  Ada  Alphonson  Boys,  dau.  of  Almon  Ives  and 
Charlotte  (Covert)  Boys.  She  was  b.  March  29,  1857,  at  Ithaca, 
N.  Y.  After  graduation  by  the  Monroe  High  School,  Mr.  Avery 
entered  Cornell  University.  The  sudden  death  of  his  father 
forced  him  to  leave  college  and,  in  December,  1873,  he  began  the 
study  of  law  at  Buffalo,  N.  Y.,  where  he  soon  became  managing 
clerk  for  Lewis  and  Gurney  who  had  the  largest  general  practice 
of  any  law  firm  in  the  western  part  of  the  state.  He  was 
admitted  to  the  bar  in  January,  1877.  He  began  his  career  as  a 
popular  political  speaker  in  the  presidential  campaign  of  1876 
and  was  soon  made  deputy  county  clerk.  In  1881,  he  was  the 
regular  Republican  candidate  to  represent  his  district  in  the 
state  legislature,  but  the  political  upheaval  of  that  year  blasted 
his  ambition.  He  has  represented  his  ward  (the  wealthiest  in 
the  city)  in  the  board  of  aldermen  and  has  served  several  terms 
as  a  member  of  the  Erie  County  Republican  executive  committee. 
He  is  now  cashier  in  the  office  of  the  Treasurer  of  the  city  of 
Buffalo.  He  knows  how  to  make  friends  and  to  hold  them.  At 
one  noon-day  function  it  was  announced  that  "Avery  knows 
everyone  in  Buffalo  except  those  who  came  in  on  the  11 :30 
train."  He  is  a  member  of  the  Buffalo  Historical  Society,  the 
Buffalo  Society  of  Natural  Sciences,  and  the  Erie  County  Bar 
Association.  He  is  also  a  member  of  the  Masonic  fraternity, 
and  of  the  B.  P.  0.  E. ;  he  is  a  past-master  of  De  Molay  Lodge,

No.  498,  F.  &  A.  M.,  and  was  appointed  upon  the  staff  of  the 
grand  master  of  the  state  of  New  York.     He  has  been  grand 
president   (New  York  state)   of  the  Order  of  the  Iroquois,  was 
twice  unanimously  elected  as  grand  regent   (New  York  state) 
of  the  Royal  Arcanum,  and  was  twice  a  member  of  the  supreme 
council  of  that  order.     Many  of  his  addresses  have  been  pub- 
lished and,  in  fraternal  circles,  made  use  of  as  campaign  docu- 
ments.   Politics  always  had  a  fascination  for  him,  and,  while  in 
national  matters  a  strong  partisan,  his  action  in  civic  affairs 
is  regulated  more  by  his  own  judgment  than  by  any  stamp  of 
party  approval  or  regularity.     In  1893,  the  firm  of  Avery  and 
Murphy,   attorneys  and  counsellors  at   law,   was   formed.     An 
illness  that  continued  for  a  long  period  necessitated  a  dissolu- 
tion of  the  firm.     Subsequently,  Mr.  Avery  became  managing 
attorney  for  the  well-known  law  firm  of  Bissell,  Sicard,  Bissell 
and  Cary,  an  association  that  was  continued  until  the  dissolution 
of  the  firm.     This  firm  was  the  successor  to  that  of  Cleveland, 
Bissell  &  Sicard,  of  which  Grover  Cleveland  was  the  head.    Resi-

efforts  to  get  the  records  of  these  families,  but  are  now  obliged 
to  let  these  pages  go  to  press  with  some  of  them  incomplete.  As

The  ancestry  of  Juliet  Eliza1'  Avery,  and  of  all  the  other 
descendants  of  her  grandfather,  Aaron7  Avery,  runs  back  to 
Capt.  James-  Avery  by  a  triple  line.  First  is  the  line  printed 
at  the  head  of  this  record.  The  second  runs  back  through 
Ellsworth*  (who  did  not  die  unmarried  as  stated  in  our  record 
of  his  father's  family)  and  through  Aaron7  who  married  Anne 
Kinne.  Anne  Kinne  was  the  daughter  of  the  Rev.  Aaron  Kinne 
who  married  Anne  Morgan,  as  recorded  on  page  386.  Anne 
Morgan  was  the  daughter  of  Solomon  Morgan  who  married 
Mary  Walworth  (or  Walsworth),  as  recorded  on  page  153. 
Mary  Walworth  was  the  daughter  of  William  Walworth  who 
married  Mary4  Avery  (No.  46).  Mary4  Avery  was  the  daughter 
of  Samuel3  Avery  who  married  Susannah  Palmes.  As  to  the 
third  ancestral  line,  the  Solomon  Morgan  wrho  married  Mary 
Walworth  was  the  seventh  child  of  William  Morgan  who  married 
Margaret4  Avery,  as  recorded  on  pages  119  and  120.  Margaret* 
Avery  was  the  daughter  of  James::  Avery.  The  three  lines  unite 
in  Capt.  James-  Avery,  the  father  of  James;  Avery  and  of 
Samuel"  Avery.  It  is  said  that  the  Rev.  Aaron  Kinne  above 
mentioned  was  acting  chaplain  at  Fort  Griswold  at  the  time  of 
the  massacre  in  1781.    See  page  374.
